afternoon tea

Using up slightly out of date food

I haven't made bread by hand for some years. I haven't even made any in the bread machine for quite a while. Anyway, I realised that a) there was no bread left in the freezer for lunch because I'd eaten the last crust as toast for breakfast and b) there was a bag of white bread flour in the cupboard with a use by date of October 2018, also a packet of dried yeast with the same expiry date.

I therefore whipped up a batch of rolls, using Mrs Beeton's Scottish Breakfast Rolls recipe. Somewhat to my surprise, they seem to have come out OK!
